defense attorney ken padowitz. thank you all for joining me. >> great to be here. >> thank you. >> joy, what is your reaction to hearing that this juror says, quote, george zimmerman got away with murder? >> you know, i think, first of all, it's finally a relief to find out that really there were no blacks on the jury. there was a matter of contention. we know now this was the juror who initially wanted to charge second-degree murder. so in her mind, this was a murder, it wasn't a killing. but you have all of these dynamics. and seema can probably talk more about this than i can. you have only six people, six women, the group think and the pressure that had to be on this juror to go all the way from second-degree murder, and as she said, to fight to the end for that idea, to have two other jurors who wanted manslaughter and three jurors who wanted to acquit when they took that first vote according to b37, the other juror. so the idea that you took three people who thought that this was a murder or at least a crime and have them converted over by the pressure that had to have been put o
in a strong national defense, how do you have enough funding? i'm willing to cut entire departments. my problem with some of the more liberal members of the republican party is, they're not willing to cut spending other places in order to preserve national defense. >> joining me now is robert george, editorial writer for new york post, josh barrel and tim carnie, senior political columnist for the washington examiner. visiting fellow at the enterprise institute. you're team paul in this one, i take it? what do you think -- why do you think this is a good fight for the republicans to have? i sense you do think it is. and why is paul the one that you're backing, that you feel speaks for the party the best. >> first let me say i do not accept rand paul's premise that eating bacon makes you gain weights, i think it's the carbs. in the foreign policy realm, what we need and in the national security realm, as far as nsa, spying and the great stuff that you and glenn were talking about earlier, what we need is a robust debate and there hasn't been that in the republican party for a long time.

, they are not necessary. the law of self-defense worked well for years and years an years. and i think there is a determination, and i was proud that both the attorney general and the president, as well as many others, have commented -- john mccain's words that these laws should be reviewed -- were also welcome, that there is a growing consensus that these laws are inconsistent with safe communities. our own poll shows race relations are, 50% of whites think race relations are fairly or very good, but only 38% of african-americans. you think that that's the impact of the verdict, partly? >> there's no doubt that the verdict has had an impact. it's, to some extent, affected people's confidence in the criminal justice system. i think that we've seen conflict and a lot of of tough language being played out indeed in the media. i remain optimistic and hopeful that reasonable minds, that people who are ready to understand that while we've come a great distance when it comes to race and race relations in this nation, in the 21st century there is a lot of unfinished work and that we've got to
at where he's going to cut spending to afford defense, maybe he should look at cutting the pork barrel spending that he brings home to kentucky at $1.51 for every dollar and not look at new jersey where we get 61 cents for every dollar. maybe senator paul could deal with that when he's trying to deal with the reduction of spending on the federal side but i doubt he would because most washington politicians only care about bringing home the bacon so that they can get reelected. >> are you going to take his advice, senator? >> this is the king of bacon talking about bacon. you know, we have two military bases in kentucky and is governor christie recommending we shut down our military bases? he wants to be this great champion of national defense. what does he want to do, shut down military bases in kentucky? in order to have enough money for national defense, you have to be willing to cut spending in other places. and governor christie and others have been part of this gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme all this money. we could have done the relief for sandy in a responsible way. i propose we do

their death. now, the defense is going to have to try to show, look, there were just too many things that happened to hold him responsible for it. it's unfortunate, but he could not have foreseen this would happen and you shouldn't hold him accountable for this. that's a tough argument the defense has. the state has a pretty strong case because these women would not be dead if he hadn't been acting with gross negligence. >> it is tragic as you say all the way around. we'll follow it and see if it goes all the way through. monica lindstrom, thank you. >> thank you. >>> a graying and humbled o.j. simpson says he is sorry for the crimes that put him in prison. perhaps for the rest of his life. here he was. appeared by video feed before nevada's parole board in support of his plea that he be granted parole for burglary, robbery and kidnapping convictions. simpson is serving a 33-year sentence and would still have to serve at least four years on two other charges, eve fn the board rules in his favor. describing his clean prison record, simpson said he is a mentor to other inmates. >> i th
in the president's big speech today. i heard an offense and i heard a defense. first the obama offense. he sees the economy not getting all that much better this year or later. and doesn't want to be blamed for it. what he wants is a battle, a national debate on the following question. did the people want to persist with the rate of growth we have now with higher than healthy jobless rate that is ebbing only slowly or push for infrastructure spending and other steps that will kick the economy into a higher gear? he wants this debate and he wants to be clearly positioned on one side of it. where the republicans refuse to support the agenda and he the president is seen promoting one. now to the obama defense. he also knows clearly the republican right ramrodded by cruz, paul, and lee are planning a showdown this fall. a manufacturing crisis that risks national default. he the president wants to position himself in the national standup that coming this fall as the leader that wants government to function. his opponents those are the people that want to shut government down. he's admitting the real
a case against the other shooters. the judge ruled they fired in self-defense and said, "the law would appear to allow a person to seek out an individual, provoke them into a confrontation, then shoot and kill him if he goes for his gun. it is very much like the wild west." one of the defense attorneys added, "you can't pick or choose who's going to benefit from a law." advocates of stand your ground tend to argue the law increases public safety, but when the courts are saying it creates a wild west, acknowledging that fact as they set killers free, it's hard to take the notion of public safety seriously. the verdict in the george zimmerman trial two weeks ago might be the most high-profile example of stand your ground's unintended consequences, but it is just one of many in the eight years since then-governor jeb bush signed stand your ground into law. 13 days ago in the wake of the zimmerman verdict, a group of protesters marched into the florida state capitol, to the reception area outside governor rick scott's office. the latest sheriff of florida's wild west and those prosecutors

defense has been more things were going to come out. i've said that all along. i don't think most of us thought they would come out from after the initial tweets when he was in congress. the ones he's talking about yesterday were in the summer of last year, a year after he resipd from congress, after he says he worked it out with his wife, after they had a child together. it means he was still doing this after all of that. >> right. his resignation from congress didn't say i apologize for what i've done and i'm going to keep doing it. as familiar as we are with corrupting -- >> i like the sound of it. if you could pull that one off. >> correct. and as much strange and bizarre and outright corrupt behavior as we've all seen and dealt with in politics, this is new ground in a whole bunch of ways, and i think, when we talk about huma in particular, you've got to address two things. she is very smart. i think she's one of the few people in this whole saga who's tried at every turn to demonstrate some sense of honor and tried to keep her family together. i think you also have to remember two

his legal defense was trying to clear the decks and hope that they could avoid these more serious convictions which do involve very serious sentencing time, depending on what the judge decides. >> that's right. i mean the charges that he's pled guilty to already carry a sentence of up to 20 years and now there are these charges on top of that. but one of the things that manning's lawyers were trying to do in entering this plea was to show that manning to some degree was taking more responsibility for his actions and that could also influence the judge's thinking when she decides what sentence to impose on him. >> how does this case fit in with -- fit within the larger rubric of how this administration, this justice department, this pentagon has approached these national security cases. >> well, it is a historic verdict, even though manning was acquitted on the aiding the enemy charge because historically the espionage act charges have been brought against spies and against traitors and not against people who leaked information to the media with no ill intent. >> so if you call him

on the defensive? >> i'm not going to speak for what the president is doing or why he's doing it. if i had poll numbers as low as his, i'd probably be out doing the same thing. >> i actually broke out laughing out loud. has boehner seen his poll numbers lately and the poll numbers for congress? the president is at 48% positive rating. boehner's at 18%. i mean, i don't know if he was joking or delirious, jonathan. >> me either. but it begs the question so why isn't speaker boehner out there touting a jobs plan? touting an alternative to obama care which he keeps allowing to go to the floor to be repealed for it to go nowhere. i mean, speaker boehner -- poor, speaker boehner. he's in a tough position. we all know why. i think the president is right to try to go around congress. and in fact, let's keep something in mind. the president has tried to work with republicans and work with congress since he walked into the white house especially since the democrats lost the house to the detriment of his base. the base was yelling at the for why was he trying to work with people that didn't want to work w
.s.a. to stop its spying on americans. the amendments are part of a defense spending bill. the effort to halt the spying bringing together democrats and republicans. >> the debate really comes down to whether we want to allow the n.s.a. to collect these records or whether we want to deny them the funding to do so. >> this means the government's authority to collect information on law-abiding americans is essentially limitless. >>gretchen: overnight we learned edward snowden, the man who leaked how widespread the spying is could be granted temporary asylum today in russia, according to his lawyers this. >>> prince william and kate middleton revealing their baby boy to the world. the future king of england managing his first royal wave. right on queue he waved. the proud parents say they still haven't settled on that name. >> he's a big boy, a little heavy. but we're still working on a name. we'll have that as soon as we can. >> i think any parent knows what this feeling is like. >>gretchen: the duchess paid special tribute to the late princess diana. i didn't realize this when i saw the first
and know the way we defend our country, the way we have enough money for national defense is by being frugal and not by saying gimme, gimme, gimme all the time. >>brian: the question is, is rand paul talking about asking questions or the n.s.a. program. when he was saying gimme he was referring to the tpabt that peter king -- to the fact that peter king who sides with governor christie said his views are dangerous and he said peter king and governor christie look for federal aid like everybody else got federal aid like in florida and other states, for sandy. he says that is why these guys are clashing. i think it is good to have direction -- >>anna: the spat got going and heated up on twitter. governor christie at the time of 9/11 was a federal prosecutor in new jersey. if you don't live here, bridges and tunnels keep everything close. he said you need to look into the eyes of widows and orphans of 9/11 victims. then you heard from rand paul saying it is a little bit insensitive for to you say i'm out of touch with all of that. guys, don't you think this paints a bigger picture for 20
is running into turbulence. only one defense contractor said it will bid on the contract. major garrett is at the white house. major, good morning. >> good morning, charlie and gayle. the president's jets, air force one and his limousine around here we call it the beef, are brand new. but the helicopter fleet is more than 35 years old. when the president first came to the white house, he resisted getting a new batch of helicopters arguing that costs too much then he approved a smaller, cheaper fleet. but the cost ironically may stick the taxpayers with a higher-priced monopoly. we take for granted the short stroll from the oval office to the awaiting helicopter. president obama, george herbert lush, ronald reagan and jimmy carter have all used the same fleet. president nixon used the fleet too, officeafter resigning madee one a backdrop to ignominy. it's faster than the limousine. more nimble than air force one, but -- >> the existing helicopter fleet is extremely old, but it doesn't have a lot of the modern features, communication features. it's kind of like driving around in an old, o
while he was an intel analyst in baghdad. the defense argues that manning is a whistleblower. that he leaks the secrets in order to uncover abuses by the u.s. military in the war on iraq. but the prosecution contends that manning is nothing but a hacker. that he's not a whistleblower but a traitor. the most serious charges against him are aiding the enemy and espionage because many of them ended in the hands of bin laden. if convicted on either of the most serious charges the 25-year-old manning could spend the rest of his life in a military prison. >>> jim, at the pentagon, thank you. john kerry hosted israelis and palestians at the white house. the dinner is a symbolic start to the talks between the two parties. >>> two people were hurt when two trains collided head on in western switzerland. five of the people were recorded to have serious injuries. it's not clear what caused the crash. police are still searching this morning for an inmate who escaped from an arkansas jail. whole thing was caught on tape. you can see 33-year-old derrick estelle on the floor. moments later he gets u
